[Development] How to add OpenSSL support on Qt Android?

Dear All,

I tried to follow http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/opensslsupport.html but I 
couldn't succeed to have https working on Android.

It seems this note is not up to date for 5.6 and later.

Apparently Qt configure disables the OpenSSL Qt code due to the 
cross-compilation environment and if I try to force the OpenSSL library 
using the options I get a conflict with boringssl from webengine.

I believe most devices have an openssl system library as on Linux (which 
should be boringssl on Android ?). Thus it should be just a 
configuration/cross-compilation issue.

That is quite annoying since https is mandatory for some network services.

Sincerely yours,
